[[folder: The Mystery of the Night Monster]]
* Fievel draws a picture of Reed Daley with huge ears. When Reed complains, Nellie quips "For a more accurate likeness, he'd need a bigger paper."
* Madam Mousey's anger at being called a rat. You just can't not laugh at that reaction while she grabbed Fievel and shook him like a British nanny!
** Her dramatic howling in "pain" with those Kaa eyes is real funny, especially when leaning close to the camera.
* Mama scolds Papa for letting Fievel fall asleep with his face in a bowl of soup.
-->'''Papa''': I figured he could eat a little, sleep a little...
-->'''Mama''': Drown a little!
* Tony Toponi's attempt at singing in the song "Who Will", injecting a healthy dose of {{Narm}} into an otherwise sappy song.

* "[[RunningGag Tanya, don't help!]]"
* During a montage where Fievel, Tanya, and Tony show the Native American character Cholena around New York, on the Tunnel of Love at Coney Island, Tony puckers up to kiss Cholena, but she picks up Fievel and has Tony kiss him.

[[folder: Fievel Goes West]]
* When Tiger was lost in desert looking for Fievel.
-->'''Tiger''': I'm lost and all alone, in a million acre catbox.
** Tiger's whole trip into the west was funny in a CosmicPlaything kind of way.
** Special mention goes to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SHd6foQ0rA Dancing Buffalo Bones scene]].
* After Tiger falls off a cliff.
-->'''Tiger''': (acts as though nothing happened) I hurt myself.
* Tiger being worshipped by the Mousehicans!
** His first line to their chief: "How..... do you do!"
* The music playing during the tumbleweed journey was quite epically funny, [[Film/TheBluesBrothers especially for those who recognize Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi's voice.]]
* Tiger spots T. R. Chula, the Tarantula coming straight at him.
-->'''Tiger''': Ahhh! [[BuffySpeak It's a spi... a spee... a spid-d-d-d...]] an arachnid!
** Before that, when he saw the mice running in fear, he swore to himself he'll be tough and brave.
* Tanya getting [[ProducePelting fruit thrown at her]] for singing "Somewhere Out There," a [[RealitySubtext clear reflection on]] [[HypeBacklash how sick everyone was of that song]]. There's also the dialogue which follows:
-->'''Tanya:''' Someday I will be a big star. People will come from miles around.\\
'''Fievel:''' Yeah, [[ProducePelting to eat]].
* When Fievel and Tiger are lost in the desert, they both bump into mirages of Fievel's family and Miss Kitty respectively. They see each other in the distance and are overjoyed...until they decide that it's another mirage. When they pass each other...
-->'''Fievel:''' Hi, mirage of Tiger.
-->'''Tiger:''' Hi, mirage of Fievel.
* During the TrainingMontage, Tiger is doing some tricks with a lasso, jumping through his own hoop. Then he does it again, and again, getting faster and faster until he ties himself up!
** A while before that, this:
-->'''Wylie:''' Now... '''''BAAARRRRKKKK!!!'''''\\
'''Tiger:''' ''(meekly)'' Bark!
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WljJMrwSlbk The dog chase scene.]] Poor Tiger can't catch a break when he's trying to get to the train station to say good-bye to Fievel, boards the train only to discover a dog's the conductor, then ends up on another train only to discover another dog, and when he falls into the water, he gets confronted by a dogfish. His deadpan response sells it:
--> "Dogfish."
** At one point during the train scene, Tiger jumps out of the window, only to get hit in mid-air by the ''other'' train going the opposite direction!
* Cat R. Waul luring the mice out west with a cowboy puppet is hilarious--Creator/JohnCleese doing a cowboy impression is truly legendary.
** And when the puppet starts talking about Cat R. Waul himself, [[ButHeSoundsHandsome he goes a fair ways off-script]].
